We don't believe academic writing needs to by dry or tedious, though some journals still insist on that. Our work relates to a study done for Local 73 Service Employees International Union between 1994 and 1998 and another of Teamsters Local 705 and 1199P of SEIU. These are a few examples out of a half dozen which have been published.
